Finals Before Finals – Fourth Day at the Games


A coffee line full of participants was marked this morning. After one or two coffees, there was a time for finals before finals.

Even before the breakfast has even started, problem-solving teams have already started to occupy their positions. Engineering and Mathematical Arenas were at the Eden Hotel. Technological Arena and its mentors headed up to Infobip via Vodnjan, while the Science Arena team visited the Center for Marine Research (CMR) as a part of the Ruđer Bošković Institute. They enjoyed the beautiful sea view in Rovinj.


While the problem-solving competitors were struggling to win their final points, all that while bonding with their mentors, other buses headed up to sports halls early in the morning also. The battle for the finals was tougher than ever. The morning started with volleyball, handball, and basketball. Beach volleyball, table tennis, cross, and futsal were up next after lunch.
